Abbey College

Abbey College in Malvern is Number 1 for student progress out of 4470 Schools and Colleges in England (most recently published by the Department of Education).

Abbey College offers a variety of high quality and flexible programmes, in the academic field, pre-university level and in the English language field.
We are a boarding school with traditional values, and our diverse international student body gives us a very modern outlook. We offer a fully residential package with fees covering the majority of what students need from the moment of arrival to the moment of departure.

Abbey College Mission Statement – To be a learning community of global citizens, helping individuals to achieve their potential and study at the university of their choice.

Academic Courses

Academic courses are any that last for eight or more weeks and occur during term time. Academic courses are divided in two main bodies. Our younger students concentrate on preparation for pre-IGCSE/IGCSE examinations. At the higher level, students work towards either the traditional AS and A Level qualifications or our specialist university foundation programmes, both of which lead directly to university entry.
